st Hilda's COLLEGE

Hello! We are Jacob (biomed) and Sophia (psychology & philosophy) and we are the CU reps for St Hilda’s this year. Hilda’s is a warm college with lots of stuff going on, all the time. We are a fun bunch who enjoy sports, biscuits, pool, sitting on the lawn and more.

 

At Hilda’s CU, we believe that Jesus’ truth and love for us knows no physical or intellectual limits, which is why our hope and desire is that every person in our lovely college has a real opportunity to hear and to respond to this unfathomably good news! To do so, we have weekly bible studies and/or dinners together as a CU, to pray together, share God’s Word with one another and speak into each others’ lives. We also meet together with all the college CUs across the university in fortnightly Central meetings. Once a term we run ‘Text-a-Toastie’, where we open the floor to our college for questions they have about life and faith, and have a chat with them about it over a free toastie! We also have other events during the week with the wider CU, including academic talks, personal testimonies and artistic expression, and open spaces for critical discussion on the Christian faith.

 

Before the term starts, there’s also a great trip (that Jacob himself went for!) called Freshaway, which is a great chance to get to know some fellow Christians before you arrive in Oxford and to think about what living life as a Christian in Oxford might look like.

If you’d like to find out more (about Freshaway, Jesus, CU, our subjects, college activities, life in Oxford, or just about anything really) or would like to be a part of all this, then do get in touch! You can find us on facebook or drop us an email at jacob.betts@st-hildas.ox.ac.uk or xin.tan@st-hildas.ox.ac.uk . We’d love to hear from you.

 

Looking forward to meeting you all soon!!

 

In His love,

Jacob and Sophia
